    Peterson's father denied request to watch OU opener

    NORMAN, Okla. -- The father of Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson will have to wait a little longer before getting to see his son play in person.

    Nelson Peterson, who spent nearly seven years in prison in Texarkana, Texas, for money laundering, was released to a halfway house in Oklahoma City this summer, but his request to attend Saturday's OU-Alabama-Birmingham game in Norman has been denied, The Oklahoman reported.

    Adrian Peterson has said he would be disappointed if is dad was not allowed to attend because he has traveled from the halfway house in downtown Oklahoma City to Edmond, where he works at an auto dealership.

    "I don't see why he can't come 30 minutes down the road to see his son play ball," Adrian Peterson said. "That'd be kind of crazy."

    Nelson Peterson is expected to be released Oct. 5. OU plays Texas on Oct. 7.
